Weekly Update

Well, it has been a jam packed week … we had fun shopping at the Garage Sale on Tuesday, sliding and gliding on the skating field trip on Wednesday, and creating Christmas fun at the museum on Friday! Thank you to all the parents who were involved in one way or another with all of these events. We have also started talking about Christmas Around the World, learning about how countries and cultures do things in ways that are different than how we celebrate here. We began a new unit in Math, one which I thought might be a little bit difficult to learn, but they were able to transfer the skills they already had learned and found success right away with it. I was so proud of them all!

Bible Memory:

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along paths of righteousness for his names sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

This is the last verse in Psalm 23. The students are pretty excited that they will know an entire chapter.

Reminders and Other Information:

  • Remember your Home Reading
  • Christmas is fast approaching, and it is time to make the classroom look festive! We are going to have a decorating party on Thursday, November 29th. The party will take place from 1:15-3pm. I am looking for 4 or 5 parent volunteers to come in and help us with some of the activities. I am also looking for a couple of parents who could bake some sugar cookies that we can decorate. Please let me know ASAP if you are willing and able! Send me an email, or leave a note in the planner. No siblings please.
  • As a primary department we have been looking for ways for our children to give back and to serve their community, and this year we have decided that we will hold a Garage Sale!

So, as you think about cleaning up and clearing out your playroom before Christmas, consider what you can donate. Donations may be given to classroom teachers. Please only send items that work, and that are in good condition. The money we raise will be donated to the Ann Davis House.

      • Taller boots including rain boots and snow boots are not included in this update. They may be worn to school but students are expected to change into appropriate footwear before the school day begins.

Well, we survived it … our first full week in a month, with a couple of non-uniform, out of the ordinary days! It was busy, and a bit chaotic at times, but a good week. We also had our first lockdown drill of the year. The Grade 2’s did a fantastic job of listening and following the instructions during the drill. We had hot lunch, which ran much smoother this time around, so we were happy about that. The Book Fair was open before and after schools this week, and it always exciting for them to pick out new books to read!
